Amos House primarily serves women in Danbury, CT and surrounding towns. That said, while Fairfield County is our focus, we receive applications from women in need state-wide and do our best to assist whenever possible.
Applicants to Amos House must, above all, demonstrate the ability and willingness to help themselves and accept professional guidance. Furthermore, they must:
-Be without a permanent home.
-Be referred by an agency.
-Demonstrate the ability to live in a communal setting and manage those relationships.
-Abstain from ALL drug and alcohol consumption.
-Commit to completing the program customized to meet their needs within the relegated time period, which may include: therapy, support groups, job skill acquisition, life skill acquisition, budgeting, parenting, nutrition, family management and/or transition assistance.
Amos House residents commit to transitioning to independent living within a two (2) year time-frame, however many move through the program and successfully transition in a year or less.
